''Grand Theft Auto V,'' ''Halo 4,'' ''Max Payne 3,'' and even some non-sequels we can't wait to play
Why We're Excited: The Metal Gear franchise was always famous for its emphasis on the stealth. Based on the hyperkinetic, blood-drenched trailer, Revengeance is taking a decidedly different tactic. There are plenty of reasons to doubt this game: It's the first Metal Gear game not directed by Hideo Kojima; during the long development process, it transformed from a prequel to a sequel; the title of the game is Revengeance. Still, such a complete break from the franchise's main mode of gameplay and the slight suspicion that the whole thing is supposed to be over-the-top make this one to watch.
Expected release date: Late 2012
